Colour: A rich golden amber.
Nose: Complex, sherried, deliciously peated, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit.
Flavour: Full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours.
Finish: Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky, and distinguished.
Comment: With greater complexity than our younger whiskies, this is a great whisky drinkers whisky.
We bottle this at 46% simply because my grandfather preferred it at this strength. Its still a family favourite.
In his 2007 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray gave Glenfarclas 15 Years Old a score of 95/100, one of the highest scores he has awarded.
